Here is Westpac New Zealand’s sustainability strategy, our progress against targets and our key results.

In developing our strategy in 2012 we worked with our stakeholders to identify the material issues for our business and repeated this process when we extended the strategy in 2015.  We have looked at how our strategy contributes to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.  You can find out more here.

This information contributes to Westpac Group's Sustainability Report, which follows the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 reporting framework. For full results for 2017 (which includes New Zealand), please see our Westpac Group Sustainability Performance Report.
